ONE HORSE, ONE ROPE, ONE SKIER...IT'S SKI JORING! AND IT'S BACK!!!

Combining two favorite action pastimes-skiing and horseback riding - Ski Joring involves horses and riders pulling skiers at high speeds around a course of jumps and gates. Did we just mix Barrel Racing with Slalom Ski Racing?

Ski Joring is an equally exciting show for spectators and everyone's invited to watch the action. Bring all to this family-friendly event. There will be booths, food, and some fun surprises.
